Kneuklid Romance - Possible Revival?

Recommended Posts

A new Twitter account has been opened for Kneuklid Romance, which teased a new project / release / ????? called "BABYLON 9."

 

 

 

They haven't announced an official date, or really said anything beyond the small teaser video, but the account has interacted with both of the band's former guitarists so my guess is that they are still involved. 

 

 

 

For context: KR were formed in the very early 90s and are most well-known in the West as "the band both of Malice Mizer's drummers were in." They did achieve mainstream success in the late 90's and eventually split in May of 2000. The band got back together in 2009 via Kisaki using black magic to perform necromancy on popular, yet forgotten, 90's bands after he realized Chariots wasn't going to be Mago 2 (re: Deshabillz && Deflina Ma'riage). This revival didn't last over a year.

 

 

 

Also, for what it's worth, "Kumo Onna no KISS" is one of my favorite vkei songs of all time 🤷🏻‍♂️

I'm almost certain they share more than just drummers: their guitarist (and main songwriter I believe??) played in Mana and Kozi's first band and there's a neoclassical vibe to their first two albums that's awfully reminiscent of Memoire/Voyage era Malice Mizer at times. Connecting the dots between bands is half the charm of old school VK!!

Gaz is now forever going to be replace by someone that's been in a band with Okamoto Ryoji and Oonishi Hiroyuki whenever Malice Mizer or Kneuklid Romance do their one off revivals?  First Sakura, and now Kaede.  It amuses me to see this as a fan of both Zigzo and test-No. to see this as a pattern.
